Credit Card debt is soaring across the United States and Minnesota is no exception. However, certain cities racked up far more debt than others.
The Suburban One Twin City had the highest amount of debt, on average, in the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes.
At the very least, one surprising city in Southern Minnesota takes the crown for having the smallest credit card debt per resident in the entire state.
According to Stacker, the city with the most credit card debt in Minnesota is the Twin Cities Suburb of Prior Lake.
Prior Lake has an average of $14,436 per household, with household credit card payments of $554. This puts it in the 80th percentile nationally.
Which Minnesota city has the least credit card debt on average? That is the city of Owatonna in Southern Minnesota, which is located about an hour south of the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area.
According to Stacker, Owatonna has an average household credit card debt of $8,218, with household credit card payments of $316. This places it in the bottom 3 percentile nationally.
As for neighboring Minnesota, in Wisconsin, Mequon holds the most credit card debt, with Wisconsin Rapids holding the least. Iowa’s largest debt holders by city, on average, go to Ankeny, with Mason City holding the least. In North Dakota, Dickinson has the most credit card debt, with Mandan the least. And in South Dakota, the largest city in Sioux Falls holds the most debt, with Watertown the least.

Inside Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store
I’ve been to Minnesota’s Greatest Candy Store before but they’ve done some pretty cool stuff since I was last there. They added a lot of superheroes, star wars stuff, and chewing gum.
According to their Facebook page, Jim’s Apple Farm is actually how this great candy shop started. Located in Jordan, MN and you can’t miss it. It’s a big yellow building.
Even though candy is mentioned in the name, they have a little bit of everything. They have fresh baked pies, cakes and fudge. We walked in and it smelled amazing!
They also have the largest selection of sodas! Then there’s chocolate, candy, gum, chips, puzzles and games. So much stuff!
They even have Zoltar machines like in the movies, Big. I have to check it out. He told me the only helping hand was at the end of my arm. Wow, thanks Zoltar.
There are even crickets and worms! Not gummy worms, but actual worms.
They also have sweets from around the world!
However, the shop is seasonal. November is their final month of operation for the season.
